Will it fit?

A Guide to Measuring for Delivery

As you create your new sofa, you’ll want to plan ahead for a successful delivery.
Use the guide below to help take the necessary measurements.

Room Measurements

Start by confirming that the piece will fit in the room where you want to put it. You can use painters tape to outline its width, depth, and height within the appointed space.

Pathway Measurements

Next, consider the pathway the piece will need to travel to reach its final destination in your home. Note any major architectural details along the route.

  • 1

    Compare these measurements against the length, depth, and height of the piece to ensure it will fit through each section of the pathway.

  • 2

    Measure the heights and widths of all entryways, hallways, and stairs that the piece will pass through both inside and outside your home.

  • 3

    Measure the clearance of each entryway. This is the distance from the outside wall through the doorway to the opposite wall. If it is shorter than the width of your piece, your piece will need to be entered on its side. Check that the height of the entryway exceeds the width of your piece in order to accommodate this.

  • 4

    When measuring, factor in architectural details, such as low or angled ceilings, stairways and banisters, tight corners, and low-hanging light fixtures that may impede movement of the piece.

Other Considerations

Elevators

Measure the interior widths, depths, and heights of all elevators to be used for the delivery. This should include the width and height of the elevator doors when open.

Stairwells & Entryways

Measure the width of your stairway (accounting for banisters) as well as the height from the top and bottom steps to the ceiling. Take stock of slanted ceilings, stairwell turns, and landings that your piece will have to fit around, through, and on.

Current Furniture

It may help to compare the dimensions of your new piece to current furniture. If your current furniture was successfully moved into your space, then a similarly sized piece should also fit. However, comparisons like this shouldn’t be relied on as a substitute for thorough measuring; use them only as an added confirmation.

How We Measure our Pieces

We provide the width, depth, and height of all our upholstery pieces. These measurements can be found under the Dimensions section of the product page.

Our furniture measurements are calculated from each piece’s widest or tallest points. Cushion overhang beyond the frame, the crown (highest point) on a fully fluffed seat cushion, and outward curves and angles are all included in the overall dimensions.

Prepare for Delivery

Our complimentary White-Glove service includes delivery of your piece into the room of your choice, installing legs and sectional clips, and discarding packaging materials. For the smoothest possible delivery, we suggest the following:

  • 1. Remove any potential obstacles between the door and your new furniture’s final placement, such as plants, chairs, accent tables, or throw rugs.

  • 2. Remove any frames or artwork from walls to avoid bumps or scratches. Please confine pets to ensure they won’t be underfoot or escape out open doors.
